As reported by Robert Pear of the New York Times yesterday, the Department of Labor has bulked up its staffing of wage and hour   investigators by one-third, or 250 investigators.  Mr. Pear reports that the Obama administration is paying particular attention to the pay practices in the healthcare industry “after finding that many hospitals and nursing homes do not pay proper overtime to nurses and other employees who work more than 40 hours a week.”
